have been using this little monster for five years. I've played a lot of heavy stuff, but never tried Cyberpunk cause I really don't thing i'll get more than 40fps in it. But if you want a cpu to play at low, get this one. Just make sure to get another cooler because these 3.9 GHz together to the cooler box will make you room the hottest room in the house. I know because I used the cooler box for two years. Just get another cooler.
